Hey Cliff,

I'm up in Chico since 2000. I don't expect to visit the Bay Area until Mother's Day weekend.

Hayward:

Los Compadres on C St.(Get the chicken taco, chile verde burrito combo. Tortilla soup is also killer.)

Carmen & Family Barbecue on A St.

Both places are hole-in-the-wall joints with very good food. Both have been family owned and operated for decades.

SF:

Biscuits and Blues(for dinner and a show)

If you decide to explore the North State, drop me a line. The Sierra Nevada Brewery/Pub and Grana and new place in town with excellent small plates are great options. My back yard is a pretty good spot as well.

Wow! Your way up in gods country! It must be really beautiful up there!

Thanks for the suggestions on where to go in Hayward. Was I was out in SF last month, all they fed me was Vietnamese food. I'm sure I'll get together with Rasta. I will definable check out your suggestions!

It looks like I will be working for the company in Hayward, and spending about 2 weeks each month out there. So hopefully we can meet up sometime while I'm there!

Hey Flow--the place on C ST...any idea how old it is? All I know is first serious girlfriend in early 70s, parents worked in HeyWord, and of course, growing up in E Bay, WC area, I had NO knowledge of such an area, BUT they used to take us to a great MX place, on that St, I believe. But, could've been anywhere, given my memory. Anyhoo, gave me an entirely diff view of Hayward which I'd only passed thru the dumps of working in my old man's construction company.

Been there since the 70's. 2 Mexican restaurants literally side-by-side. Across the street from Casper's Dogs and the old Hayward Bike Shop.

You got it, there are some very tasty Mexican resturants there. I know of one (can't remember the name) where you walk thru the store to get in - behind Caspers

Yes--I am sure that's it...well, close enough to say "small world" and call it a day.

Ah, memories...

Los Compadres opened in 1966.
Anyone remember Aggie's Hotdogs?

Cool, thx. I will have to ask the old girlfriend, as she still lives in the area. Recall a hotdog place, but was thinking it was the Caspers Flow mentioned...

There was a Casper's and an Aggie's.
You might recall the Gay 90s Pizza Palace across the parking lot from Aggie's with that crazy multi-gadgety organ. It was a serious Saturday night hangout for many decades.

Was Aggies across from Kennedy Park? I seem to recall having a burger there once with Marc Subotnik and his dad Dr. Subotnik....the foot Dr. of Hayward.

Indeed it was. When my siblings and I were wee ones (late 50s/early 60s) our dad would first take us to Aggies on many a Saturday where we would feast on doggies and/or burgers and say hello to George and his brother, a couple of robust Greek gentlemen who may have been the west coast version of "Cheeburger, cheeburger, no fry, cheep!" George could easily have replaced Anthony Quinn in Zorba.
Then we would usually head across the street to Kennedy Park and hang out there for awhile. It was always a fun time for us.
